Proclamation Signing

FFA Week
Mr. Bonser, Assistant Principal, Signs The Proclamation For FFA Week

HEMINGWAY (February 17, 2021/National FFA Organization) – In the challenging academic environment of the coronavirus pandemic, Carvers Bay High School and the Carvers Bay FFA Chapter have adapted to the climate to continue to help students excel. One piece of evidence of that is how the Carvers Bay FFA Chapter will celebrate National FFA Week, Feb. 20-27, 2021. Carvers Bay High School’s Assistant Principal, Jeremey Bonser, signed a proclamation this week alongside several FFA members. This National FFA Week embraces more than 93 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organization's future. More than 760,000 members will participate in National FFA Week activities at local, state, and national levels.

 

Designated FFA national week in 1947, the week of George Washington's birthday, National FFA Week runs from Saturday to Saturday and gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, each chapter conducts a variety of activities to help others in their schools and communities to learn about FFA and agricultural education. Carvers Bay will celebrate National FFA Week by participating in the following activities: conduct a hat day as a way to raise money for the American Cancer Society, conduct an emblem coloring contest at Pleasant Hill Elementary School for potential future members, and participate in the Spring Adopt-A-Highway Cleanup day alongside the school’s FBLA and SkillsUSA chapters.

 

Today, FFA provides the next generation of leaders, who will change the world. FFA helps young people meet new agricultural challenges by developing their unique talents and exploring their interests in a broad range of career pathways. FFA members are our future leaders, our future food suppliers, our future innovators, and much more. “National FFA Week provides us an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our FFA chapter present and future,” exclaims Bonser. “FFA allows our students an opportunity to grow as leaders through the tool of agricultural education. They are using that opportunity to impact our community, for the better!”

 

Whether it is through service projects or community gatherings, National FFA Week is a time for FFA members across the country to raise awareness about the role the National FFA Organization, especially focusing on the development of agriculture's future leaders and the importance of agricultural education.

 

The National FFA Organization is a school-based national youth leadership development organization of more than 760,000 student members, as part of 8,700 local FFA chapters in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
